Greek Greens, Tomatoes, and Garbanzos

Recipe Ingredients for Greek Greens, Tomatoes, and Garbanzos

2 spanish onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
31 oz garbanzo beans
28 oz whole tomatoes
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika
1 tsp oregano
8 cups kale, chopped

Recipe Directions for Greek Greens, Tomatoes, and Garbanzos

  1. Peel and chop the onions and garlic. Prepare the spinach or other greens by washing, chopping and setting aside to drain. Rinse and drain the chickpeas.

  2. Sauté the onions in the olive oil, in a large heavy-bottomed pot, until soft and translucent.

  3. Stir in the minced garlic, and then in a minute or two add the chickpeas and tomatoes. Season with the chile, salt, paprika and oregano. Let simmer for about 5 minutes to allow the flavours to blend. Add a splash of water if it seems too dry.

  4. Add the spinach, chard, kale or whatever you have, and cook until it is done to your liking. Add the lemon juice, tasting to see how much you would like. Unless they are small, I generally consider one lemon to be sufficient. Adjust the salt if necessary.

  5. This can be served as originally suggested with bread and feta, but I like to serve it over steamed rice.
